Some great thoughts.

What is mounted on your rail aft of the optic?

What is mounted on your rail aft of the optic?
I have very high cheek bones. While most people find the rail too low, I find it too high. When I try to get a good cheek weld, I usually see the mount under the optic. So, I 3D printed a cheek riser. It's not elegant, but is functional and puts my eye right in the middle of the ACOG with a standard AR true co-witness height mount.

The "silver" part just at the rear of the rail is a clamp I machined to hold the riser in place. Then I put some double-side sticky tape under the rear of the riser to keep it from wiggling left to right.

So far, it works great. I have not tested it under extreme conditions. I intend to put it to the test in Feb when I go to an intensive long (I use that term loosely with the X95) gun training.

I use the Magpul MS1 padded sling. I shoot right handed, so the front is on the left side, and the rear on on the right rear. The sling fall naturally over the buttplate when hanging.

I mentioned regular MS1's in my first post in this thread, but I also use a couple of padded MS1's for my heavier rifles like AR10's and a chassis bolt rifle for hunting.  That little bit of padding really helps when toting one of the beast guns...LOL!  Honestly, I think there are a lot of very good slings available these days, but the padded MS1 offers a nice soft spot without it being the old, fat, fluffy padded versions of yesteryear.  For heavier guns, it's a nice option.  I use the regular MS1 on the Tavor.
